Judge Scolds Woman Tried In Lotto Winner’s Death

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A judge has been losing patience with the woman being tried in a Tampa, Fla., courtroom on charges of swindling, then killing a lottery winner.

Friday is the fifth day of Dorice “Dee Dee” Moore’s trial. She’s charged with first-degree murder in the 2009 shooting death of Abraham Shakespeare, who won a $30 million lottery in 2006.

Judge Emmett Battles scolded Moore several times Thursday, telling her she shouldn’t gesture or nod during witness testimony and evidence.

Moore’s lawyer said most of the evidence against his client is circumstantial and that there’s nothing tying Moore to the gun used to kill Shakespeare.

Shakespeare’s decomposed body was found under a concrete slab and buried in the back of Moore’s home in January of 2010.
